  • Flip over Nerites?

    Ok so random question, Im about to go buy a bunch of nerites at the local store (just got a big shipment in for a GREAT price) and I am wondering when they are in the tank do you need to flip over nerites? I know you have to flip turbo snails but what about nerites?

                I had one that was stuck on a piece of slate, just doing laps for 4 days. Finally I came out one morning and he had taken the 1/2" leap off of the slate and was on his back. It looked like he wasn't trying to right himself so I went ahead and relocated him to a greener area of the tank, right side up of course.

                  I assume he was much happier after this.

                  Thou Im curious as to how he got stuck there. Mine in my 33 long doesnt mind going upside down at all. he is all OVER that tank lol

                    It was funny because he was on the other side of the tank originally! He traversed many obstacles to ultimately end up on this rock but when he got there he just started doing laps like he thought he was on top of a HUGE mountain or something. I moved him to the tall cave/mountain in the tank with the other nerite and now he's a professional mountain climber, going upside down and all over. Maybe he just needed some practice.

                        Haha! I'm really liking these little guys, at the "summit" of my mountain cave it was absolutely covered in green algae being only 2" form the light. As they went to work you could see swaths cut through it down to clean rock, I don't think I could've done better with a wire brush!

                        Now they're both kind of going in circle around the summit munching away, they're going to need some serious time on the round slate to work off all these algae calories.

                            They are very thorough! They've cleaned the summit and are methodically working down the mountain now, I can't wait until they feel they've done a good enough job on the mountain and move onto the glass.
